South Pasadena Mid Century Modern home by Miller Fong

This single-story South Pasadena Mid Century Modern home, designed by the esteemed architect Miller Fong, exemplifies the enduring allure of mid-century modern design. With its sleek lines, generous use of natural light, and seamless integration of indoor and outdoor spaces, this architectural gem embodies the quintessential elements of the period. Every detail, from the tastefully appointed interiors to the manicured exterior landscapes, echoes a harmonious blend of aesthetics and function, preserving the integrity of this timeless style.

The post-and-beam construction throughout the home not only reinforces the structural integrity but also adds an element of dramatic design to the space. This structural element accentuates the high ceilings and amplifies the sense of spaciousness. Complementing the home’s open floor plan, the construction seamlessly integrates form and function, creating an interplay of light and shadow and adding depth and intrigue to the interior spaces.

The residence boasts three spacious bedrooms and three bathrooms. The bedrooms offer sweeping mountain views that serve as a spectacular backdrop to living. This thoughtful architectural design truly embodies Miller Fong’s vision of integrating the home with its natural surroundings.

The home’s exterior features a large backyard and spacious side yards, providing the ideal setting for outdoor entertaining. The central courtyard is an extension of the house and an integral part of the living experience.

Constructed in 1965, this 2,277-square-foot Pasadena home is an impressive testament to Fong’s architectural vocabulary. Its enduring appeal and timeless design have rendered it worthy of consideration for the National Register of Historic Places.
